Health care workers in Boston are currently responding to humanitarian crises (examples include the massive encampment at "Mass & Cass," as well as the current COVID Omicron surge), and yet our teams and larger systems were designed for "business as usual." Health care workers, team leaders, and institutions, most of whom are not trained in disaster response, must evolve to do more to support front line workers in the setting of disasters. In this lecture, we will consider strategies to support health care teams that have been used during humanitarian crises.
All Dental and Medical Staff
1. Using the massive encampment at "Mass & Cass" as an example, recognize hazards faced by health care workers responding to humanitarian crises.
2. Describe concrete team-based and institutional strategies that support front line workers during disasters.
